Stretchable electronics pinpoint healthcare solutions

|29 January 2017|


An American company is spearheading the development of stretchable electronic computer systems – worn on the body – which gather data to monitor people’s health.

The award-winning MC10 strives to improve human health through digital healthcare solutions. It has developed the game-changing BioStamp® platform, a stretchable, flexible, multimodal biometric sensor which can be worn easily on different parts of the body. The BioStamp Research Connect™ System (BioStampRC®), is the first product featuring the platform. It gives researchers a solution for unobtrusively gathering real world data from subjects and collaboratively organizing and reviewing recorded measurements.

Labeled “a potentially revolutionary product,” by Rob Blenkinsopp, Innovation Research Manager at Speedo, BioStampRC provides a complete solution for researchers to seamlessly gather and manage physiological data. The end-to-end system consists of MC10’s proprietary soft stretchable sensors as well as cloud based storage and analytical tools, enabling innovators to easily design physiological monitoring studies and collect and share biometric data with collaborators.

MC10 wants to prove wearable technologies make a difference in delivering solutions which make lives better. Its pioneering rubber band like products, which provide up-to-the-minute information via ‘visionary sensing technology’, are designed to advance the development of personalise healthcare solutions.

The company’s groundbreaking technology earned it the CNS Summit 2016 Innovation Showcase Award in November – an award presented to the company who earns the most votes from audience members for the most innovative, promising solution.
